    That Tough Family Mediation Case that Still Haunts You:  A Confidential Conversation Among Mediators

    Working in family mediation can be isolating.  For April, the Bridging the Distance Committee wants to talk about those tough cases we all remember.  What happened?  How did you handle it?  How do you wish you would have handled it?  What did you learn from the experience?  Let’s support one another in a safe, confidential forum.  This one hour zoom teleconference is open to anyone who wants to share and learn about family mediation. 

    Bridging the Distance Community of Practice

    The Bridging the Distance Committee's Community of Practice provides ADRIA members outside of Edmonton or Calgary with Professional Development opportunities and a link to ADRIA staff. Often, when we are at a distance, we don’t have colleagues with whom to debrief or opportunities to connect. The Bridging the Distance Community of Practice can be that forum. As a community of practice, we want to be able to share, learn, develop and grow. 

    Members in Edmonton and Calgary are also invited to join.   Everyone is welcome.

    Pepperdine University School of Law

    Professional skills program in dispute resolution

    Featuring a panel of nationally recognized experts in dispute resolution, this comprehensive program provides two and a half days of unique educational opportunities for practicing professionals. Participants will network with nationally prominent faculty, as well as participants from the other specialties at plenary sessions, lunches, and receptions. Early enrollment is recommended since many of the sessions fully subscribe.  

    Participants select the process in which they desire expertise (one course only), as all programs will be presented simultaneously. To provide for personalized instruction, enrollment for each course is limited to ensure a close working relationship among the faculty and participants. Course sessions will include lectures, small group discussions, and practice exercises. Faculty and other participants will also provide performance coaching. The synergy of ideas will provide a truly unique learning experience.

    Alberta Conflict Resolution Day
    October 17, 2019

    Let's Talk ADR

    Conflict Resolution Day is an international celebration held on the third Thursday in October every year. In Alberta, a committee of representatives from both provincial government and community dispute resolution programs work together to support and promote events across the province.

    Conflict Resolution Day was started in 2005 by the Association for Conflict Resolution in the United States to raise public awareness of creative and peaceful means of resolving conflict. Now communities around the world hold events to mark Conflict Resolution Day.

    Let's Talk ADR

    ADR sometimes stands for Appropriate Dispute Resolution because it describes options other than going to court, but as ADR has become mainstream we use the term Appropriate Dispute Resolution to describe all the choices available to prevent and manage conflict in a non-adversarial way, including: mediation, arbitration, and restorative practices.

    Our goal is to get Albertans talking about their options to work through conflict in a positive and productive way. 

    Date:

    October 17, 2019
